Hey Guys,

Had some people asking some questions about these so I wanted to post the answers for everyone:

1) On the Stainless Model, the Standard Medallion is the Alloy Medallion in either the standard Finish, a Black Anodized Finish, a Red Anodized Finish or a Blue Anodized Finish.  We can definitely do any medallion that you would like on this to include Damascus, Copper and Mokume

2) On the Alloy Medallions, We are offering these for a Limited Time with a Free Anodized Finish.  You can choose between the Standard Alloy Color, a Black Anodized Finish, a Blue Anodized Finish or a Red Anodized Finish.

3) All Medallions come standard with the MACHINE Logo Engraved.  You can also elect to have your name or saying engraved on the Medallion.  There is a $30.00 Charge to have the Medallion Custom Engraved.

Thanks

-Chris

Hey Everyone,

Attached below are some of the other Green Tools we have been making lately, both as the Limited Edition 1st Run of Hand Made One-of-a-kind models, as well as some of the offshoots that have come from them (short run production orders and additional prototypes).   Hope you enjoy the photos as much as we have had making these so far!  (with new models also in the works).

First up is a family photo of the first 12 pieces of Hand Made's (two already on their way to customers at this point), some further along than others obviously

MGT_HM_1stRelease_WIP_Damascus_7x_Alu_PT_x3.jpg

Next up is one of the first Prototypes that has since gone into a short run production.  This is Proto MGT-1, shown here in Damascus with Rainbow Torch finish, and outfitted with a Mokume Gane Medallion with our Dog & Ball logo engraved and multilayer patina applied.  

MGT_HM_No1_Damascus_B_Hicks_Mokume2_Fin.jpg

Here is a slightly modified version of the MGT-1 in Aluminum Bronze, with custom initials engraved in an Aluminum Bronze medallion:

MGT_D_Ferrell_Hand_Made_Green_Tool_F.jpg

We have also received a lot of requests for the Single Prong or "One Tine" variety, as you can see in the photos below.  First up for these is Prototype # 1, a Damascus Hand Made with our MACHINE logo on one side and the Dog & Ball Logo and Proto #1 hand stamped on other.  

MG_HMGT_DA_Borders_Proto1_1tine_D&B_b.jpg
MG_HMGT_DA_Borders_Proto1_1tine_D&B_t.jpg

We've made some modified versions of these in Steel with White Ash Burl exotic hardwood medallion, as you can see below:

MGT_One_Tine_303_B_Hicks_Blk_Ash_Burl_t_Fin.jpg

More to follow in a follow up post!  

Hope you enjoy.

-Dave

Per my previous post, following are some more photos of the 1st Run of Hand Made Prototypes and offshoots:

Next up is one of the two larger Proto Green Tools with 1" Damascus Ball Markers held in with super magnets.  This first one has a Mokume Gane Logo Medallion:

And here are the wild offshoots from the One Tine variety.  These are called Disco Ball One Tine's and feature removable butt caps with smaller 0.750" ball markers with stem, held in place with a super magnet and also featuring a brush to clean out the grooves of your MACHINE:

MGT_Hand_Made_Disco_GT_x2_PT.jpg

MGT_Hand_Made_Disco_GT_x2_PT_exp1.jpg

MGT_Hand_Made_Disco_GT_x2_PT_exp2.jpg

All the parts of these (except the brush) were hand turned on our Hardinge Tool Room lathe, and then hand milled on the Bridgeport mill for the Disco Ball (and modified Disco Ball) patterning (which removes weight but maintains strength).

I am also hand making leather and Kydex sheaths for these that will clip to your belt or pants pocket and keep them from poking you in your pocket!  lol  I'll post photos as soon as those are finished.  

Hope you enjoy these crazy Hand Made MACHINE Green Tools!

Thanks again,

-Dave Billings

The round single prong knurled might be a novel look. And eliminate the Brigdeport operation.

Hey Everyone,

Here are a custom pair of Green Tools we finished recently for a customer.  These are "two-of-a-kind" hand milled Damascus with hand-turned custom Damascus ball markers with personalized engraving on the Damascus Logo Medallions and Ball Markers.  

Super magnets hold the ball markers in place but are easily slid out of their groove with a simple motion of your thumb.  All Damascus parts are acid etched and hand finished, hand torched and aged oil quenched, then protected with a concentrated Carnauba wax.

Hope you enjoy the photos!

Best,

-Dave
